have you tried any good wafers ?

if we ignore nature;maybe it will go away

10 gallon..nothing but air

10 gallon...just more air

How did the pleco kill the clown knife? Seems more likely the clown knife died of other causes then the pleco had a meal, unless it's a Leporacantichus rather than a more common species.
